Star Wars has had future and prophecy baked into it from the very starting, with the Power invisibly guiding our characters in direction of their meant locations. However generally, you must sit again and marvel concerning the loopy chain of coincidences that kick off A New Hope.
The plot begins with C-3PO and R2-D2 escaping to Tatooine to search out Obi-Wan Kenobi, solely to be captured by Jawas. In an enormous little bit of luck for the way forward for the galaxy, they’re then bought to a younger Luke Skywalker (the son of the man that constructed C-3PO within the first place!) and so they solely purchase them as a result of their first alternative of droid blows up.
If that crimson astromech droid hadn’t malfunctioned, Luke would possibly by no means have seen the message, by no means discovered Obi-Wan, by no means left Tatooine and by no means turn into a Jedi and saved the galaxy. So, what would this alternate Luke have ended up doing along with his life? Properly, the query was put to Mark Hamill by a fan on Twitter, who requested what his occupation may need been if future hadn’t come knocking, and right here’s what the actor stated:
“I’d wish to suppose he would have been a trainer.”
Factor is, Luke did turn into a trainer within the Sequel Trilogy and it didn’t go notably nicely. Within the wake of Return of the Jedi, he arrange a coaching academy for younger Padawans, just for him to fail to stop Ben Solo from being seduced to the Darkish Aspect by Snoke. After Ben awoke to search out Luke hovering over him with a lit lightsaber, his rage introduced down a lightning storm on the varsity, destroying it and killing lots of the college students.
Clearly scarred by the expertise, Luke turned a hermit and solely very reluctantly skilled Rey within the Power in The Final Jedi. Nonetheless, this not less than proves that he at all times had the instincts to show, even when he thought of himself to have failed Kylo Ren. So, ultimately, Luke turned out to be an honest trainer – leaving apart that one time he tried to homicide one in all his pupils. Hey, all of us have off days.
